The Peterson 68 is a bent Brandy with a slim shank and big deep bowl. The warm walnut stain and sterling silver band of the Army series is an attractive pairing with the shape. The addition of army-mount and the Peterson PLIP make this a highly functional smoking pipe from the famous Irish brand.

This is one of Peterson's underrated shapes, a chunky full brandy which entered the Peterson catalog in 1978. The one I received has an acrylic P-Lip, which is slightly thinner than the one shown, and the ferrule is flatter on the end. Not quite as elegant, but the P-Lip acrylic is bent correctly and can be easily clenched. Smokes great with most anything but Virginias and vapers, which may burn your tongue in this kind of Pete. For those, I'd recommend a System.
Love this pipe. I've gone through a few brands and styles since taking up the hobby and so far this is my favorite. The PLIP stem seems a step up for me, I will definitely consider more Peterson pipes using that system.
Beautiful pipe that smokes like a dream!
I was pleased to receive my order of a Peterson # 68 Army pipe this last Tuesday, which was obviously mailed out promptly. The pipe is absolutely beautiful, and I couldn't be more pleased. I smoked it for the first time to break it in and no surprise, it smoked really well. This was my third order from your shop and I'm sure there will be many more. Thank you for your prompt service. --------jb
Smokes wonderfully. This is another rather large and hefty pipe. I love the finish on it. The attention to detail could have been better but I still give it 5 stars.
